Been a while since I've kvetched about fellow animal activists, so this is overdue. Another brilliant mink release, this time in Utah, of about 600 mink from a mink farm. Shockingly, "most of the mink were recovered, but several died after being hit by cars or from stress after they were returned to the farm."

Let's be clear: There's a quantum difference between a captive-animal rescue and a captive-animal release. While both make a political statement and get publicity, one of them shows compassion for the animals involved and the other just uses them as means to an end, not much differently from how they're being used by the institutional exploiters.
